IamA Flight Attendant at a Major US airline AMA!
My short bio:
I've been flying for a little over a year now... and it's Christmas Eve and I'm stuck on Airport Standby, where we sit around the airport for four hours in case someone happens to not show due to traffic/weather/"sick" calls. Figured I'd pop on here during the holiday travel season and answer questions you all might have.
I work for one of the legacy US carriers (my proof photo might give away which one...) and work primarily domestic trips, though I've gotten my fair share of Europe and South/Central America. I've also been able to travel to every continent (except Antarctica) in the last year. As one of the few straight guys in the industry, I've gotten a unique experience unlike any other workplace I've ever been at.
I can't/won't answer questions that might identify me, nor will I answer questions relating to aircraft security. Also, I'm not speaking on behalf of my employer and my opinions are my own.
So go ahead reddit, Ask me (almost) anything!
My Proof: Edited Proof
Edit Im free! I didn’t get used, so I’m heading home. I’ll be popping in later tonight or tomorrow to get anything left.
Edit 2 I'm back for awhile! I'll just answer questions as they come in, until I fall asleep. I'll be back tomorrow morning (not spending the holiday at home, so I'll spend it on Reddit I guess)
Edit 3 Wow, this blew up overnight. I'll try to get to what I can today, but no promises!
Final Edit: Thanks for all the fish! And thanks to whoever gave me gold! If there's interest, I may do another one of these in three months - maybe scheduled?
